I recently got a crown on one of my upper teeth due to minor decay. Since then, I have been having mild to severe pain in my gums. I have been to the dentist three times to have this looked at but he cannot see anything wrong. No problem showed on the and all the tests he had conducted turned well. I decided to see another dentist.
The new dentist said I have a and the pain in my could have something to do with the pockets in my teeth or it could be due to nerve damage caused by excessive drilling on the tooth when the crown was done. He said we will try to give the tooth some time to settle and if the problem continues after two weeks, I will go back to him for a canal treatment.
Has anyone had similar experience? How long does it take for the pain caused by nerve damage to go away? Is the dentist liable for this? Thank you in advance for any information you can give me.
